I noticed that the HTML 4.01 validator incorrectly reports XML style empty
elements as erroneous. For example:

<HR /> is reported as an error but is actually correct.

I have assumed that HTML 4.01 accepts XML style empty elements. If not, this
raises the issue that XHTML 1.0 valid documents are not HTML 4.01 valid.
